Let’s Band Together… To Reuse

Natural, Holistic, Non-Toxic – these are ideals that we strive for as oil users. We believe in the positive effects of essential oils and make it a point to recycle and reuse our oil bottles and rollers. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always extend to how we elect to label our oils. Most of the oil industry defaults to labeling oils with stickers, which can only be described as the opposite of the natural, holistic, and non-toxic characteristics that we value. Sticker manufacturing relies on chemicals, lots of them! 

Did you ever wonder how the “sticky” gets on the back of a sticker?

We did, and it turns out that the self-adhesive PVC sticker, also known as polyvinyl chloride sticker, can be problematic to the environment and our homes. The PVC stickers that most of us use or have used, especially the high-end Vinyl stickers, are made using a wide range of chemicals.

Plasticizers, the third largest polymer by volume after Polypropylene and Polyethylene, are most often used in PVC sticker manufacturing and many other everyday products. In order to manufacture PVC and the adhesive, these chemicals are used –

  • Synthetic Resins
  • Adipates
  • Benzoates
  • Chlorinated Paraffins
  • Citrates
  • Epoxidized Oils Hydrocarbons
  • Phosphates
  • Terephthalates
  • Trimellitates
  • and many, many more too long to list out here

As we strive to remove as many toxins as possible from our homes, we continue to purchase stickers that are made with chemicals and, equally as important, not reusable.

We should all begin to consider a reusable and washable alternative to labeling our essential oils as we opt for more sensible and conscious products that align with our intentions to reuse and recycle.
